Watch World première of Yellow Submarine Wednesday 17 July 1968
The world première of The Beatles’ animated feature film, Yellow Submarine, took place on this evening at the London Pavilion on Piccadilly Circus.
Although the group had largely retreated from the public eye in recent months, with their trip to India and the recording of the White Album, their popularity remained undiminished. As with their previous film openings, large crowds turned out, blocking streets and bringing traffic to a standstill.
The only Beatle to arrive alone was Paul McCartney, whose fiancée Jane Asher was absent. Three days later she announced the end of their relationship on BBC television.
News spread when Asher had failed to attend the world première of Yellow Submarine three days earlier; all the other Beatles’ partners were there.

“I always feel very wary including Jane in The Beatles’ history. She’s never gone into print about our relationship, whilst everyone on earth has sold their story. So I’d feel weird being the one to kiss and tell. (Paul)
Among the other guests were The Rolling Stones’ Keith Richards, plus members of The Who, Status Quo and Grapefruit.
